Innovation Mission on Industrial Electrification and Power-2-X

Shared Innovation Program VoltaChem is co-organiser of the Innovation Mission on Industrial Electrification and Power-2-X to Germany.

In September 2017, a three-day innovation mission will be organized in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, on industrial electrification and Power-2-X.  Power-2-X is the conversion of electricity in other energy carriers and products. These technologies can contribute to a reduction of the carbon footprint in the chemical sector. This mission fits in the trilateral strategy to strengthen the chemical industry in the Netherlands, Flanders and North Rhine-Westphalia. The aim of the workshop is to bring together people from Dutch, Flemish and German businesses, research institutions and governments, in order to share insights on the current state of research efforts and directions in this field, and explore opportunities for international collaboration.

Nordrhein-Westfalen is renowned for their energy intensive industries and the chemical sector. In this region, many companies are currently developing technologies for, and are doing research on the industrial electrification. Important companies and research institutes in this field, like Evonik, Bayer, RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich, are established in this region. The mission is organized in cooperation with the government of North Rhine-Westphalia and other local network partners.

The mission consists of two parts. The first day of the program will focus onpresentations, interactive panel discussions, networking and matchmaking.German, Flemish and Dutch experts, from companies and research institutes, will give you an overview of activities in the field and present interesting projects. During the matchmaking session, you can build your network and exchange thoughts on selected topics like system integration, electrolysis, power-to-heat and others. Enclosed you will find the program of the three-day innovation mission.

The second part of the program is optional and will comprise several site visits by the delegation to companies and research institutes in Germany.


  • Workshop Day 1: free admission
  • Site Visits Day 2 + Day 3: € 175,-

The  fee includes the lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks and transport during the 2nd and 3rd day of the mission.
